We propose and analyse two convergent fully discrete schemes to solve the incompressible
Navier-Stokes-Nernst-Planck-Poisson system. The first scheme converges to weak solutions satisfying
an energy and an entropy dissipation law. The second scheme uses Chorin’s projection method to
obtain an efficient approximation that converges to strong solutions at optimal rates.
